Default Einstein's Schizophrenic World

Brainwashing in Einstein's schizophrenic world is immeasurably more efficient than brainwashing in Big Brother's world:

Einsteinians teach that time SLOWS DOWN for the traveler:

Brian Greene: "If you're moving relative to somebody else, time for you slows down."

Neil deGrasse Tyson: "...Einstein's special theory of relativity, which gives the precise prescription for how time would slow down for you if you are set into motion."

Jim Al-Khalili: "And, the faster you move and the longer you move at that speed, the slower your clock ticks, including your own internal biological clock, and so the slower you age - by tiny, tiny fractions of a second of course."

Einsteinians teach that time SPEEDS UP for the traveler:

David Morin, Introduction to Classical Mechanics With Problems and Solutions, Chapter 11, p. 14: "Twin A stays on the earth, while twin B flies quickly to a distant star and back. [...] For the entire outward and return parts of the trip, B does observe A's clock running SLOW..."

"The situation is that a man sets off in a rocket travelling at high speed away from Earth, whilst his twin brother stays on Earth. [...] ...the twin in the spaceship considers himself to be the stationary twin, and therefore as he looks back towards Earth he sees his brother ageing MORE SLOWLY than himself."

"Time SPEEDS UP for the traveler" is an idiocy validly deducible from Einstein's 1905 postulates. The antithetical idiocy, "Time SLOWS DOWN for the traveler", is non sequitur.

In Big Brother's world minds oscillate between lie and truth:

"Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. [...] The process has to be conscious, or it would not be carried out with sufficient precision, but it also has to be unconscious, or it would bring with it a feeling of falsity and hence of guilt. [...] use conscious deception while retaining the firmness of purpose that goes with complete honesty. To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies - all this is indispensably necessary."

In Einstein's schizophrenic world minds oscillate between the idiocy validly deducible from Einstein's 1905 postulates, "Time SPEEDS UP for the traveler", and the antithetical idiocy which is non sequitur - "Time SLOWS DOWN for the traveler".

The non sequitur, "Time SLOWS DOWN for the traveler", is much more detrimental for human rationality - for that reason it is taught by almost all high priests in Einstein cult. The above two quotations teaching the correct deduction, "Time SPEEDS UP for the traveler", are rare exceptions.

Bingo the Einsteiniano:
